A Long History of Excitement and Innovation

The RAV4's history began due to increased SUV demand in the late 1990s. More customers wanted to enjoy smaller SUVs to give them better visibility and cargo volume than many sedans provided. The RAV4 made its grand debut in 1994 and provided a shining example for other automakers to follow. This compact crossover had lots of outward visibility and an available all-wheel drive. The interior of the RAV4 was to provide plenty of flexibility for cargo and passengers. Toyota chose "RAV4" for this crossover, meaning "Recreational Activity Vehicle: 4-Wheel Drive.

This SUV initially debuted as a three-door model, though a four-door model also came available. By the next RAV4 generation, introduced in 2000, only the four-door SUV remained due to its popularity.

Lots of New Innovations to Enjoy
